Celebrity Snippets: Sean Bean, James Franco & More
* Co-stars Tyrese Gibson and James Franco were fighting for real during boxing scenes in new movie Annapolis after a few stray punches landed. The pair play fierce rivals in the film, set at the US Navy's tough training facility, and their feelings for each other came out in the boxing ring. Gibson recalls, "There were a few oopsies. I call them oopsies because his face wasn't supposed to be there, my face wasn't supposed to be there. I was like, 'OK, James!' It got serious at one point but I don't really want to talk about that."

Farrell says, "I don't wear them to the discos and the clubs. They're only for the first day of filming. Shamrock shorts - not very glamorous! I've worn the same pair for about seven films now."
